If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice. ~Meister Eckhart
Thanksgiving. A day to reflect on all the blessings we have in our lives and be grateful to God who makes it all possible. It really is such a beautiful holiday – one I wish I lived more consciously every day.
Our Thanksgiving table has always been a fun project that my whole family creates together. Each year we try to top the year before, or at least come up with something completely different.
Behold – our moss green and cobalt blue inspired Thanksgiving tablescape! This table top is super rustic and colorful. The deep blue and green compliment all the Thanksgiving food so well! We scavenged for anything blue or green: candles, vases, candle holders, napkins, plates. Then we added in some rustic wood elements in candle holders and chargers. We purchased a couple bags of green moss from Hobby Lobby.
But candles and colors aside, it’s important to remember why we all come together on Thanksgiving. Last year we tied quotes of gratitude and thankfulness onto sprigs of rosemary and stems of pears and set one on each plate. Every quote was different – some funny, some serious, some famous, some unknown. Each person read their quote out loud during dinner. It was a lovely way to celebrate the season and be ever mindful of the spirit of Thanksgiving. CLICK HERE to see how to make these DIY Gratitude Name Cards.
